Kona Coffee Farm is a 221-acre coffee plantation located on the Big Island of Hawaii. The property is nestled directly above the town of Kailua-Kona in the Holualoa community, which is considered to be the "Beverly Hills" of Kona.
The coffee farm was developed during the late 1990's, by one of the pioneers in the Kona coffee trade, making the age of the trees nearly ideal for years of maximum coffee production. The coffee orchard is planted in rows of trees interspersed with grass that yields a very pleasing appearance and has the feel of a large, prestigious estate.
The development master plan is to provide a gated community of 60 to 80 custom estate home sites ranging from one to five acre parcels. More and more homeowners and investors are purchasing at the higher elevations on the Big Island in order to escape the heat of the shoreline and enjoy panoramic views. This project is perfectly positioned to capture upscale homeowners who like the exclusivity, privacy, space and the views afforded by these estate lots, but who do not want the responsibility to maintain the excess acreage. A coffee cooperative will be established to maintain the coffee plants and market the bean production.
The operation of the Kona Coffee Farm allows the developer the unique opportunity to generate income during the entitlement phase of the development. Once sold, each homeowner would own a portion of the coffee plantation on their own lot. The beans could be used for the owner's personal consumption, or farmed and roasted by the cooperative and the owner would share in the income, or the owner could individually label and market the beans and sell them as their own ultra-premium Kona brand. Either way, the residential home owner has the added value of coffee income and potential tax benefits from their property.
